PHILADELPHIA (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Hill International (NYSE:HIL), the global leader in managing construction risk, announced today that it has acquired a licensed New York State Engineering corporation. The acquisition allows Hill to offer their New York City and State clients resident engineering and inspection services.

“This license provides Hill with a significant growth engine in one of our largest U.S. operating regions, while supporting our commitment to client service evolution,” said Hill Chief Executive Officer Raouf Ghali. “We look forward to leveraging Hill’s track record of project excellence and industry reputation as we introduce this high-value service to current and future clients.”

Hill currently provides resident engineering and inspection services for infrastructure clients across the U.S., including work on major aviation, highway and bridge, and rail and transit programs and projects, but was precluded from offering these services to many New York City and State clients due to the lack of a New York State Engineering license. The company will now leverage the best practices and lessons learned from its many U.S. infrastructure projects to better serve their New York metro area clients.

“The new entity allows us to expand our service offerings, grow our business in New York, and better serve our valued clients,” said Gill M.S. Mosseri, PE, Vice President and Hill’s New York Metro Infrastructure and Operations Manager.

“We are extremely excited about expanding our service offerings and having Gill join our Northeast team. I’ve worked with Gill for over 20 years and he has a proven track record of successfully leading organizations and delivering infrastructure projects across the New York Metro area,” said Dominick Fickeria, Senior Vice President and Northeast Regional Manager.
